Title: Near field cosmology and the local group of Galaxies
Abstract: Near field cosmology aims at exploiting the high-quality astrophysical
observations of the local Universe for cosmological pourposes.
In recent years, observations Local Group (LG) of galaxies (e.g. relative to
abundance and anisotropy of substructure), have been used to claim
inconsistencies within the Lambda Cold Dark Matter (LCDM) standard model of
cosmology. However, the comparison between random-phase N-body simulations and
